Mugs for the perfect tea

British designer Onkar Singh Kular‘ objective is to create objects which could exist as comfortably in a gallery as well as high street homeware catalogue.

Tired of being served too-milky tea, he created a series of china mugs in colours which correspond to the owner’s ideal brew.


His set of 128 tea mugs follows the Pantone range of colours, with shades that gradually change from beige to brown. So whenever you have to make tea for someone else you will be able to tell from the colour of the mug s/he picks up exactly how strong the other person likes it and how much milk to add.
